We're excited to highlight the recent "Sustainable Editorial" on the interesting link between international trade and the Volkswagen emissions scandal in the "Loyal Opposition" edition of the Cornerstone Journal of Sustainable Finance and Banking (Volume III, Issue 6, September 2016) written by Brendan O'Donnell. The piece shows how international trade exposed the emissions manipulation at Volkswagen.  Read a Free Executive Summary
